  • New Documentary Seeks to Tell True Story of Columbus

    October 14, 2020 by Knights of Columbus

    NEW HAVEN, Conn.Oct. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A new documentary on Christopher Columbus co-produced by the Knights of Columbus and the National Columbus Education Foundation with narration by Chazz Palminteri will premiere nationally this Columbus Day Weekend.

    Courage and Conviction: The True Story of Christopher Columbus examines the life and legacy of the historic figure credited with the discovery of the New World.

    The documentary provides insight into the skills of Christopher Columbus as a sea navigator, as well as his deep desire to evangelize and bring Christianity throughout the world. The film also shows why Christopher Columbus continues to engender admiration for his Catholic faith.

    Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, who is featured in the documentary, commented, “Columbus did not discover a perfect world, nor did he build one. However, he introduced the possibility for those who came after him to create a better one. Through this film, we present an honest review of his legacy.”

    Weaving in expert interviews and archival footage, the film looks at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has held for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. The documentary also examines questions about the legacy of Christopher Columbus and what gave rise to modern-day feelings of antipathy towards the explorer.

    The documentary’s narrator, Chazz Palminteri, is an Academy-Award nominated actor, screenwriter, producer and playwright — best known for his roles in Bullets Over Broadway and A Bronx Tale.

    Courage and Conviction: The True Story of Christopher Columbus will be broadcast on EWTN on October 11 at 10 p.m. and October 12 at 6:30 p.m. and will be available for streaming at kofc.org/columbus on October 12 at 7 p.m.
